hi der
im gonna be in sydney on the first week of december. i was wondering if anyone knew of a good budget hostel or other alternative around the city. der are so many on the net i just don't know which one to choose. it would be gud to get someone that has actually stayed in one and found it a good hostel.
any info would be greatly appreciated.

I stayed at Base Backpackers for 2 weeks and it was pretty good - central, clean and social.

I stayed in the Strattons Hotel which is a youth hostel and is bang in centre of Sydney. Was also cheapest hostel I stayed in in all my time in Oz. Good luck to you trying to book somewhere now though, wont be many spots not fully booked...

We stayed in Strattons, DLux Budget Hotel (it's just a hostel) & Asylum.

Strattons is OK, DLux is good for a party (upstairs on the roof) & Asylum has super comfy beds & a really cool vibe ... but it's slightly more expensive.

Wake up is also very popular, clean & super modern (and right in the centre) but I've never stayed there.
Sydney Central YHA is right by the trainstation & is popular (could well be booked up)

I'm sure you know about it but I didn't find out about this site until halfway round the world - :)
